I am currently a student at West Valley Community College, majoring in Liberal Studies and studying to be an elementary school teacher. I am an App Critic for IOS apps for SlashApps and I love nothing more than working with all sorts of technology, especially my phone. My love for technology is one of the main reasons I am thoroughly enjoying my new job as an App Critic. With this job I get the best of both worlds, using my phone and getting to share about all the great apps I find with people who actually care.

I absolutely adore young children and would love to help them learn about all the amazing ways to use computers and other types of technology.
